Sleepyhead - Mark Billingham

DI Tom Thorne joins a taskforce set up to investigate the murders of several young women who, despite having no risk factors, have died of strokes before being thoroughly washed and then dumped. A terrifying and riveting plot, one that will definitely stay with me for awhile.

Although I really enjoyed it, I have to say that the sudden switching between characters with no warning dulled my enjoyment a bit. Although I got used to it after awhile, it continually jarred me from the book. Perhaps that was the point, a little psychological mind game in a psychological thriller. But still, in my opinion, it was the difference between a 5 star book and a 4 star book.

Overall, a great read.
